Shannon Vineyards

Elgin Valley Wine Route

Outside Seating, Wheelchair Friendly, Pet Friendly

Shannon Vineyards is owned by James and Stuart Downes, sons of local fruit farmer Keith who acquired the Elgin Valley property in the late 1990s. Its name is a nod to the family's Irish ancestry. The vineyards, located on hillside sites above the banks of the Peninsula Dam, comprise just over a dozen hectares and share the land with fruit orchards. The dominant varieties are Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. Shannon's wines are made in the Heme-en-Aarde Valley by Gordon and Nadia Newton-Johnson.
